[eclipse-dev] Advice on working with GitHub

Hi folks,

One of the frustrating things I have had with working with GitHub is the lack of email notifications for many actions:

- Builds completing - I have to go back and check PRs to see if the build is complete. This one is partially solved, but is imperfect - see
- Reactions - sometimes I ask a question or seek approval, and they come as thumbs-up or similar
- Edits - user edits a comment, but only the original is emailed, sometimes those edits now include question or something else that needs to be acted on. An example of this was - I got an email notification that said "to solve the buildnumber problem, will try to find it again" but I didn't get a notification that the "update ..." had been edited into the message. (I know this wasn't on eclipse platform repo, but it was a recent example of the issue)

Now that we have a bit of GitHub experience collectively under our belts, how do you all handle this? Am I missing something? Should there be policy around this (e.g discourage edits that substantially change meaning, don't use reactions for stuff you expect others to react to)?

Thanks for your input!
